of research for jk investment group and michael kujino who is with permanent portfolio fund. gentlemen, good to see you both. thanks for joining us. chris, it worked out perfectly for a stock like b of a which last year in 2011 was the worst performing dow component and this year it was the best performing dow component, so the dogs of the dow theory worked out that time, didn't it? >> right, he sure did, bill, and i think actually this one is going to be another darling for this year when you look out to 2013. it's interesting. the stocks almost doubled here in 2012 yet the analyst community has only 35% of their rankings in the buy category, so this one is a quiet performer. i think a lot of people were expecting regulatory environments to really play havoc with it towards the end of the year, and i think a lot of political capital will be spent on what's at hand right now obviously with the fiscal cliff, and obviously what we do with 2013, i don't think that you're going to see a lot of regulation questioned, asked during 2013. >> okay. >> i think this one is one stock that will benefit.

from michael kors do well. second half of the year is a different story and perhaps the turnaround of tiffany's to be the name for the second half. >> meantime, r.j., i think you would agree retail remembers scrambling right now because consumer confidence is plunging. three reports in a row that have been pretty dismal. >> yeah, i would agree. i think we're looking for a bit of a pullback in 2013, not only due to the fiscal cliff issues that will become more aware, especially when we see january paychecks hit, but we've had a great three-year run in consumer discretionaries so we think there's a bit of a pullback in store for 2013. as a result, we like the guys who can bring the lowest cost to the consumers at any given times, names like costco, names like amazon. >> i'm going to play the devil's advocate here for a second because we're always told never doubt the power of the american consumer. is it possible, is it possible that when people see their paychecks going down because of higher taxes next year, they will still spend what they want to spend, spend the same amount? migh
